Turning colder Thursday

2:45 PM, Tuesday, February 21, 2017

After another mild and breezy day Wednesday (but a little less warm than today) we are looking for a turn to colder weather Thursday and Friday. Bitter cold is not expected, but we will likely see our first below average temperatures since February 2-3.


The storm circulation at mid-levels of the atmosphere that accompanies the cold front is likely to be very close to the Colorado-Wyoming border. This would put the east slopes of the Front Range in a region not favorable for significant snow. Although there is a chance the storm could shift south, recent trends would suggest otherwise.


Therefore, expect some accumulating snow in the mountains (especially west-facing slopes) Thursday and Thursday night, with a chance of intermittent clouds and snow along the lower foothills and plains of the Front Range (minor accumulation if any). The chances for more significant snow are a little greater in Cheyenne. I’ll update tomorrow if there are shifts in the storm evolution.
